relief. the race looks as tight as ever, but new polls out this morning from "the new york times" and cbs, show that president obama has ever-so-slight leads in the three biggest battleground states of florida, virginia, and ohio. >> jon, thanks very much. >>> back to josh with other top stories. >> we're going to begin with wall street reopening this morning after the first two-day closure caused by weather since the year 1888. many wall street firms face big problems with flooding and power and just with getting their employees to work today. critics say the exchanges are no better prepared for emergencies now than they were before the attacks of 9/11. >>> and some experts now say the economic toll from hurricane sandy could top $30 billion because of all the lost business. that doesn't actually include the physical damage and the extent of it. >>> meantime, concerns over more frequent floods and extreme weather have prompted new york's governor to say the state should consider building a levee system or other barriers to protect wall street and all of lower manhattan. >>> meanwhile, in
, we have a poll today, a three-swing state, this is in new york times, cbs news an quinnipiac poll. florida, 48-47 for obama. ohio, 50-45 for obama. and finally virginia, 49-47 for obama. these three states very, very close. looking at the numbers, what do they tell you? >> reporter: they tell me, brooke, they're fascinating, in particular florida and virginia. these are the big three swing states. that's what we have been going through on the battleground bus tour. florida, virginia, ohio. mitt romney had real momentum coming out first debate. he had gotten a sizable or comfortable narrow, but narrow lead in florida, virginia, that seems to have dissipated where the two polls you mentioned have obama narrowly up and ohio has always been president obama's firewall. no republican has won the white house without winning ohio. that leaves something sizable good for chicago. there is so much noise around the polls now, the focus is on early voting and the ground game. it is no substitute for actual votes. and that's what folks of both campaigns right now. >> john avalon in the battlegr
% obama, 45% rrm. virginia, 49% obama, 47% rrm. that is from the cbs quinnipiac poll. let's start with you on this, congressman. the good news is that the president's lead is shrinking. we've seen it go down dramatically in those battleground states. the bad news, though, is that he is ahead. even if it's a squeaker. >> i think there are a couple of things to think about on this. number one, volunteers who are knocking on doors of those who have not voted yet come back with a very different message than what you're getting in the polls. for the president, the fact that there are still undecideds and the independents seem to be breaking toward mitt romney, that is not good news for him. it shows the momentum is definitely with mitt romney. people want change. they want action on day one. and they've been presented a very clear choice between the president and mitt romney. >> do you have any concern that in a state like yours and states further south they'll go for romney by these overwhelming margin margins, are you concerned that obama will win the popular vote, romney will win the elector
, it's the battle for the state and the electoral votes. these are brand new numbers out from cbs/new york times and quinnipiac. three of the most important battleground states, one is ohio. the president has a five-point advantage for ohio with 18 electoral votes. florida and virginia are also battleground states, basically tied up according to the new numbers from quinnipiac. >> we have heard mitt romney wants to expand the map to michigan, maybe pennsylvania. people saw that as a sign of maybe going on offense, but if the ohio number is really five points or three to five points as we have seen in a number of polls here, it could be that romney needs to find another way to pick up the electoral votes and not get ohio. >> every republican who has won the white house has won ohio. it's tradition, you need it, but there's an avenue for mitt romney to do it without ohio but it is tough. eventually he would have to bring up the score everywhere else in the battleground states or try to expand the map. >> we are also hearing a lot about fema and mitt romney's position on fema. yester
